Preschool Lead Teacher | Program Director
Working with children is something I knew I was always going to do. I have taught preschool for 7 years and did in-home daycare for 8 years. I have 3 beautiful children; Kelsey (11), Claire (7), and Carson (2). They keep me very busy and I absolutely love it. Not may people can say they love going to work every day but I truly love what I do.

My name is Madison (I go by Madi). I have lived in this area my entire life. I graduated from high school when I was 16 and I went to college for nursing right after. I have worked with kids since I was 12. I started out babysitting and fell in love with childcare! I am currently working on getting my lead teacher certification.
Libby fills all roles in the classrooms, as well as helps behind the scenes to keep the center running smoothly!
